One the the things that people like about Cryptocurrencies is that there is a feeling that you have to “Earn” it. Its so new that there really isn’t Cypto “old money.” There aren’t a bunch of Crypto trust fund kids. Or families of 3rd generation rich, Crypto kids.
It’s newer money. So people feel like the people who have it, earned it more. They learned something new. Or maybe they actually “mined” it.
Within the crypto world, the accounting is on something called “The Blockchain.” Where, basically, people get paid in cryptocurrencies by doing accounting work.
So, to get IT (money), you probably had to do SOMETHING.
